This page is written in the in-universe perspective of the "Garion" series' of novels.

Geran V was an heir to the Rivan Line, and the father of Garion. A quarryman in Annath, he married an Algar girl named Ildera, and lived a reasonably happy life until 5354, when the Grolim Chamdar, after years of quietly manipulating the family, made an outright attack, burning their house down and killing Geran and Ildera.
